From Nov. I until the end of the year, troopeps will be working overtime hours to increase visibility and safety on North Dakota road- ways. With winter and holiday travel approaching, the NDHP wants all motorists to arrive at their destination safely. The NDHP is asking motorists to make responsible choices when driving. Buckle up, drive for the conditions, and never drink and drive. If you see an impaired driver, call 911. Avoid distracted driving such as talking on a cell phone, texting or any activity that takes attention away from the road. "While enforcement is proven to prevent crashes, driving re- sponsibly is the best insurance any motorist has of arriving at their destination safely," said Col. Prochniak. "'I urge motorists to re- member that driving is a full-thne responsibility." The day before Thanksgiving is historically one of the busiest travel days of the year. As part of this enforcement effort, all sworn NDHP personnel will be out on the road on Nov. 21. All driving laws will be stTictly enforced. shouldn't be acceptable to anyone driving, or riding, in our state." In 2011, 69% of individuals killed in motor vehicle crashes were not wearing seatbelts. To do their part, officers across the state have one main goal in their up- coming increased efforts and that is to keep all drivers alad passen- gers safe by ensuring seatbelts are buckled. "Buckling up is the single most effective thing you can do to pro- tect yourself in a crash," concluded Nelson. "During this increased en- forcement period and always, re- member it is important to buckle up every trip, every thne."

According to Katie Bartelson, Donor Recruitment Representative at United Blood Services, "Edin- burg had a great turnout. Out of 37 people who volunteered to donate, 33 were able to give. Thirteen peo- plegave blood on the automated 2RBC machine which collects two traits of red blood cells during the donation, so a total of 46 products were collected. There were 7 peo- ple who donated for their first time." Lynette Langerud and Alida Flora co-coordflmted the drive. The Amercian Legion Auxiliary sponsored the drive. Space to hold the drive was provided at the Community Center. Others who assisted -with the drive were: ` Lois Otto;Mary Bur- kett, Loretta Monson, Maria Peter- son, Vera Brandvold, Joan Olson, Market on Main, Citizens State Bank & Walsh Comaty Press. The availability of blood is de- pendent on the success of blood drive held in many communities. The citizens of the Edinburg area can be assured that their commu- nity is a good example of a well- run blood program. On behalf of the patients who benefited, United Blood Services appreciates all the thoughtful peo- ple who volunteered to belp others by giving of themselves.

Reporting deadline nears for fall seeded crops BISMARCK, N.D.--- Farmers and ranchers in North Dakota are reminded that USDA's Farm Serv- ice Agency has new acreage re- porting deadlines for the coming crop year. Producers must report fall seeded crops and perennial for- age, which comprises grass, hay, alfalfa, and pasture, by November 15, 2012. Aaron Krauter, State Executive Director for FSA in North Dakotal says the change comes as a result of a national effort to align acreage reporting dates between FSA and Risk Management Agency. "The big change for North Dakota pro- ducers is that we now have two acreage reporting dates," Krauter said. "You still need to report spring crops by July 15th, but if you're planting a crop like winter wheat that will be harvested in 2013 or have hay or pastureland, it's important to get those crops re- ported by November 15th." Because of the change in re- ,porting dates, late-filed fees will not be assessed if producers miss the November 15th, 2012 deadline. "Going to two different acreage re- porting dates is a new thing tbr producers in North Dakota, and we understand:that it's going to take a while to get everybody thinking about coming into their county of- rice in thefall," Krauter said. Producers should contact their local FSA county office if they are uncertain about reporting dead- lines. In order to meet FSA pro- gram eligibility requirements, producers must submit timely acreage reports. Reports filed after the established deadlines must meet certain requirements to be ac- cepted ......... W
